I don´t understand the competition. Is it about who makes the best mock-ups of these pieces?
Severely confused... Confused

Yes.
Need help, what exactly is confusing?
Should we use the name "Mockup" instead of "Demo"?

Ah, OK, ... I see. I just don´t get what´s so interesting in making a mock-up contest. Poor jury.
Probably nobody wants to hear any Di Meola anymore afterwards.

Wow, VSL team, that's a great offer!

I think I want the Pro WW & Brass more that Strings & Percussion (but I suppose I'd want the performance set also, which is the whole orchestra)

Currently I have the First Edition Complete Orchestral Package.

I guess I need to talk myself into this as money is a bit tight these days - would it be crazy NOT to go for the COP Pro upgrade?

Your thoughts are welcome

best,
John

I still don't see an upgrade path for the Vienna Harps.

I already have Harp1 in both the 1st Edition Giga and Pro Edition EXS.

But I don't want to buy Harp#1 for the 3rd time in order to get Harp #2!

Hello Bruce,

the price for Vienna Harps is 149 $ (instead of 295 $) if you have the Complete Orchestral Package Pro Edition (or Strings and Performance Set).
Cheers,
Sabine

Hi Herb,

The product info link on the New Demo DVD page does not work. Surpriseops: It just gives one of those 404 Page Not Found Errors.

Have a great day Big Smile

All the Pop up texts will be fixed soon. We are working on it, but needed some sleep as well [Wink] The same with the discount calculator.

Some people start with the products of the Horizon Series, as they can not afford the Pro Edition yet. With some work involved you can earn one now. Everybody needs to do 2 demos/mockups so it is not going to be too easy. But we hope that some of you are going to try and will have fun with it.

We know, there are not a lot of rules, as we wanted you to be as creative as you like and not set any limits.

I am sure, the jury will have fun comparing the different ways to make one demo. Some people might imitate their favorite musician, some want to make a complete new interpretation, some might discuss in the forum while working on the same piece.

It might be a bit of an experiment, but if it works it can be very interesting and in the end there are 3 NEW HAPPY OWNERS Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile of a Complete Orchestral Package of the Pro Edition.

If you have any questions about the Competition, you can contact me at or just post it in the forum. We will be around as always!

Have fun!
Anna

Ahhh.. thanks again ..

this is good way to get chamber strings at last..


i'm wondering if the discount for solo strings is the same offer of.. "pay for the solo instruments you don't have" offer that applied to us PRO ed owners..


i'm loathe to add it to my purchase if it's not the same


and one more request.. I KEEP asking for this..


can Ireland NOT be included in the GB sterling distribution of time and space please.. we use EUROS since it started like the rest of europe.

i feel as though i'm being penalised for something by having to pay in sterling.

it is not fair to us to have to pay exchange rates when we could just pay in one currency..

please .. pretty please
cheers, fitch

yep.. i just checked ... i can buy the solo strings for 145 eu... it's on the products page..

messy .. because i would get charged in GB sterling for the chamber strings if i order them both together..


so what's the best alternative here.?
cheers, fitch

Sorry if I'm being dense, but is there some promotion or upgrade path to chamber strings I missed somewhere?

i'm trying to get the discount calculator to give me a discount honest..

i can get the solo strings to be discounted to 96£ because i'm a pro ed owner

but the chamber strings does not show any holiday discount..

did i get something wrong?


are you not offering chamber strings in the holiday 10% off.. and will it be 10% off my total bill too if i order solo strings too?
cheers, fitch

Hello fitch,

96£ is the discounted price of the Solo Strings if you already have the Pro Edition (Complete Orchestral Package or Strings&Performance Set). That's a regular price (we did not want you to pay again for the solo violin and the solo cello which are part of the Pro Edition) and not a holiday special.

Chamber strings are not included in the Pro Edition, so there's no discount on the Chamber Strings.

Our holiday discounts are:
30% off for all upgrades from First to Pro Edition (Complete Package or single modules).
15% off for all upgrades from Opus1 to the Complete Orchestral Package of the Pro Edition ( you save 674 €).
15% off for all purchases of a Complete Orchestral Package of the Pro Edition (you save 824 €).
And of course the free downloads for all Pro Edition users (so far - more to come for _all_ our customers with registered products Big Smile )

All the best,
Sabine
